Welcome to The Gwydyr Hotel in Snowdonia



The Gwydyr Hotel, rich in history,  is a beautiful Victorian property which dates back to the early 1800s. Originally a small private dwelling, the property was extended to become a hotel in the 1880s.

Lying in the heart of Snowdonia the Gwydyr Hotel is surrounded by some of the most picturesque scenery in North Wales.

Situated in the centre of the pretty village of Betws-y-Coed and overlooking the delightful village green, the hotel provides the perfect setting for a relaxing and memorable break.

The Gwydyr Hotel is particularly well known to people who find their greatest pleasure in fishing and the history of local Salmon and Trout catches can still be viewed to this day.


We offer a wide selection of home made meals, cooked to order which can be taken in our spacious dining room between 12noon and 8.30pm, booking is highly recommended.

Large bedrooms are fully equipped with colour flat screen televisions, tea/coffee making facilities, central heating throughout, all with private bath or shower, for your comfort.

Under new ownership and after many years of neglect,  the hotel is going through a phased programme of refurbishment, the ground floor was refurbished during January/February 2014 and the bedrooms are phased to be completed during 2015/16. Every effort will be made to ensure the enjoyment of your stay will not be affected.
